Mark Hamill tries Jedi mind trick on Hillary’s FBI investigation, turns to Orwellian Memory Hole when he looks like Sith Lord

mark-hamill-dont-panic-vote

Someone needs to tell Mark Hamill that the internet is forever. After news broke yesterday that FBI Director James Comey was reopening the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, “Luke Skywalker” tried to play a Jedi Mind Trick with his 1.87 million followers.

“Don’t panic- VOTE!” he wrote, as if that was actually an appropriate response to the news.

Here is an embarrassing truth: Mr. Hamill wants Americans to vote early for a woman who is under an active FBI investigation. Does that sound like something a Jedi wold do? Tsk, tsk.

When principled men and women started pointing out the absurdity of Mr. Hamill’s advice, before long the tweet was deleted.

The problem for Mark is this — guys like me will go deep into the Memory Hole with a digital spelunking helmet on and pull that sucker out — no matter how long it takes.

Mark Hamill knew that it looked really bad to tell people to ignore the implications of voting for someone who could be indicted by the FBI, so he deleted the evidence. He doesn’t ever want to come across like a blind ideologue, because once that happens he begins to lose influence. He needs you to believe that he is just a “swell” guy like you — when the truth is far different.

Here is a truth bomb for Mark Hamill: He is the type of partisan hack who dehumanized Mitt Romney in 2012 and now wonders why Donald Trump is popular with millions of voters. 

Here is what “Luke” said in July 2012:

“You look at Romney and I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but he’s like The Thing. He only imitates human behavior; he’s not actually human himself. Do you know he had lemonade on the campaign trail and he said ‘Lemon … wet … good.’ Gwwaaaahaha!”

When even decent candidates are dehumanized and mocked by cultural influencers, it is only a matter of time before a man like Donald Trump is embraced.

  • Mitt Romney was tarred as the Batman villain “Bane” for his work at Bain Capital.
  • Mitt Romney was framed as a guy who didn’t care if women got cancer and an architect of the so-called “war on women.”
  • Mitt Romney’s running mate — another good man — was portrayed as someone who would literally push his own grandmother over a cliff.

Guys like Mark Hamill treat morally upstanding men like punching bags, but Donald Trump is not a punching bag. He is a lot of things that I do not agree with … but he is certainly not a pushover. And instead of admitting the role that he played in bringing about our current political and cultural wasteland, Mr. Hamill tells his Twitter followers to vote — as soon as possible — for a woman with a perpetual cloud of corruption over her head.

Mark Hamill may play a Jedi on the big screen, but in reality he is filled with hate and anger. When it becomes obvious for all the world to see, he tries to cover it up with the ‘delete’ button.

Unfortunately for Mark, the internet is forever.

Mark Hamill: Obama critics are insane; if he was sarlacc I’d gladly dive inside

Mark Hamill says that you are “insane” if you don’t vote for Barack Obama. Apparently, Mark doesn’t think it’s insane that the federal government’s profligate spending forced it to pay more net interest on its publicly held debt in 2011 than it spent on the Department of Education.

Mark Hamill’s BMI suggests he hasn’t been training in the Dagobah system anytime within the past decade, but that’s no excuse for why he couldn’t answer a simple question at at San Diego Comic-Con 2012. A reporter asked “If you can pick one of your characters or one of Stan Lee’s characters, who would you dress up as?” Everyone’s favorite Skywalker used it as a springboard for a weird Occupy Wall Street-tinged attack on Gov. Mitt Romney.

“When I was a kid one of the great shows I used to watch was Disney’s Zorro. And I knew nothing about Mexican history, but just the idea of a privileged person fighting for the underdog — there is something very romantic about that. I guess it goes back to Robin Hood, people who are fighting for the middle class, the have-nots. It’s something that we even see playing out in the presidential race. And if you don’t vote for Barack Obama you’re insane, because without him I think the middle class will completely disappear. And you look at Romney and I’m sure he’s a nice guy, but he’s like The Thing. He only imitates human behavior; he’s not actually human himself. Do you know he had lemonade on the campaign trail and he said ‘Lemon … wet … good.’ Gwwaaaahaha!”

Given a softball question on superheroes, Hamill instead chose to personally attack Mitt Romney in a way that dehumanized the man. (Try that same tactic on President Obama and watch how fast you’re labeled a racist.) On top of that, he suggests that if you disagree with Barack Obama’s policies that you are, in fact, “insane.”

Why would a Hollywood actor do such a thing when he was completely unprovoked? The answer: He’s scared. There really is no other reason why someone would take an innocuous question that has nothing to do with politics and use it as an opportunity to let loose with ad hominem attacks and political screeds.

Mark Hamill should have remembered Yoda’s advice: “Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.” He didn’t, and the result was that he came across as the strange guy who is so obsessed with politics that he has to inject it into neutral environments and sour everyone’s mood.

Regardless, since Mark wanted to talk about Robin Hood and how “romantic” it is to steal from people, let’s look at IRS data, shall we?

It looks like Mark Hamill’s definition of “the rich” includes a lot more people than, say, liberal billionaire George Lucas. The top 10% of wage earners paid 71% of all federal income taxes, and the top 25% of wage earners paid 88% of federal income taxes. Any way you slice it (even with a lightsaber), the “wealthy” and the middle class are paying more than their fair share. But again, according to Mark Hamill, you must be “insane” if these stats — which come from the Internal Revenue Service — bother you.

Interestingly enough, the last question Comic-Con’s red carpet reporter asked Mr. Hamill was, “What’s it like to kind of be a God when you walk into a place like this?” Instead of saying, “I’m not a God and I shouldn’t be treated as one,” Hamill embraced the reporter’s premise and answered with a smile. Fitting, since it’s obvious that the actor imagines himself as a philosopher king straight from Plato’s Republic and he sees Barack Obama as our saving Sovereign from Hobbes’ Leviathan.

Mark Hamill has spent much of his life living in the world of science fiction and “romantic” tales. Those of us in the real world have to deal with the consequences of a confiscatory federal government that resembles the sarlacc pit monster. It’s not fun. Luckily, these days we usually only have to listen to guys like Hamill when he makes the rounds at comic book conventions.

If the sarlacc pit monster looked like Barack Obama, what are the chances that Mark Hamill would dive inside and smile as the digestive juices at away at his skin and slowly killed him? Magic Eight Ball says: “Highly likely.” If you listen, you can hear the federal government sarlaac pit monster speak. It’s saying, “$16 trillion in debt and I’m … still … hungry.”
